We spent an hour searching at our first site ... and though we were glad to have discovered a new park that we had never even known about in our 12+ years of living in the Bangor area ... we never did find the cache! Since then, we have learned a few hints about its locale, and will return to find it before any "muggles" discover the booty!
Our second geocache search (and ultimately our last for the day) was a success! Our GPS brought us to within a 100 foot radius of the stash (located in one of our favorite Bangor parks) and within about 20 min, Halis discovered the stash tucked away in a log. It was super exiting for all of us!
I SO look forward to finding every stash in our city ... and discovering so many little nooks that we never knew about prior to GeoCaching (which seems to be one of the greatest benefits to this "sport"). What a great way to enjoy the outdoors, do some exploring, role play the whole pirate/Indiana Jones thing a bit, and get some fun booty ... not to mention spend some quality time with your family.
Geocaching is simply awesome. Try it! Maybe we will see you "on the trail"!
